If you're going to leave your TV gig for a life toiling at marijuana legalization, do it with some panache. At the end of a segment on a cannabis club last night, Alaskan news reporter Charlo Greene revealed herself as the club's owner and availed herself of any journalistic conflict of interest with four words: "Fuck it, I quit."
The KTVA reporter's monologue, captured in the video above, is delivered with supreme confidence:
Now, everything you've heard is why I, the actual owner of the Alaska Cannabis Club, will be dedicating all of my energy toward fighting for freedom and fairness, which begins with legalizing marijuana here in Alaska. And as for this job—well, not that I have a choice—but fuck it, I quit.
We sincerely apologize for the inappropriate language used by a KTVA reporter during her live presentation on the air tonight. The employee has been terminated.
The Alaska Cannabis Club, according to Alaska Dispatch, "connects medical marijuana cardholders with other cardholders who are growing cannabis." In November, ballot Measure 2 will ask Alaskan voters to decide whether to legalize adult use and sale of cannabis in the state.
